Most modern casinos offer their patrons many different ways to spend their money other then playing craps, poker or blackjack.
If you are not very knowledgeable or are intimidated by the table games, you can always kill a few hours by playing the slot machines. The slots are fun and are not very stressful or hard to play, just drop in a quarter and hit spin.
Most casinos also offer video blackjack and poker as well so you don’t have to worry about looking foolish playing against better players.
Most casinos today also offer non gambling related activities for kids and those of us who do not wish to gamble such as shopping.
If you love to shop then you should warm up your credit cards because many casinos also have some of the finest clothing and jewelry shops available. The reason for that is if you win some cash they hope you will spend it in their shops, casinos are also usually built around populated areas where you can take the car and take a short 5 or 10 minute drive and be in the local city, where you have access to local shops and malls full of great shopping centers.
Maybe you are in the mood to see a comedian or a famous singer, because many of them tour the different casinos and perform shows there. The casinos will usually offer free tickets to their shows to big spenders in the casino, so if your wife or husband has been playing and winning or losing lots of money there is a good chance you can see a free show.
If you are looking for things to do with the kids then look no further. If the casino does not have amusements for the kids, then there is a good chance the casino is located near an amusement park. The casinos open in these areas to make it more attractive to family’s on vacation. You can spend the day taking the kids out and then sneak down to the casino after they fall asleep in the room.
Depending on what time of year it is and where the casino is located there may be an outdoor pool you can lounge around get some sun and have a swim. Or maybe the indoor pool and spa may suite your needs better where you can swim some laps after having had a workout in the casinos gym. Then you can even get a massage from fully licensed masseuse before getting ready for one of the casinos fine restaurants, and if that does not suite the family most casinos also offer more family friendly restaurants as well as a few fast food places.
The casinos are not fools they realize that not everyone will enjoy a vacation that consists of sitting for 8 hours a day at a blackjack or poker table, and to cater for this crowd they have loaded their hotels with other activities so the entire family can enjoy their vacation, even without gambling.
